I think you're right and I was wrong:
I don't think it's a question of right vs. wrong yet. I prefer to
think of it as "we're looking for consistent sets of rules, and we'll
choose a rule set that fits our goals."
Package authors may want to use the smoketest to find out if their
packages builds outside their own environment, and push something
there that hasn't gone through Norbert. If that's true (and I
think it is),
I know it's true for me (or it will be once I get back to working on
"my" packages again :-P).
Mats should indeed to an onsub-pull to feed the smoketest.
As a corollary, then, you're "right" that only Norbert should do a
commit in the top directory (ie, where XEmacs.rules lives).
